All Cove Kevana products are 100% handmade—by owner Sherreida—using thoughtfully selected ingredients. Our products are tested on humans and never on animals. Our mission is to encourage and empower God's handmade with His Word, one handmade product at a time. For this reason, all Cove Kevana products have faith-inspired names and are labeled by hand with Bible verses that correspond with each product's name. Also, 5% of Cove Kevana, LLC's annual sales will go to support community-based mental wellness/suicide prevention efforts (read why, here).

Our soaps are real soaps made with real ingredients. They are made in small batches using the cold-process method. This method involves accurately weighing and mixing plant-based oils and butters (e.g. coconut oil, shea butter), milk (e.g. hemp milk, goat's milk) and sodium hydroxide (known as lye) together. This mixture results in a process called saponification, which creates soap. Our soaps are cut by hand 24 to 48 hours from the date they are made and cure for up to six weeks before they are made available for sale. Cured soaps do not contain active traces of lye and are safe for use.
We use plant oils and butters in our soaps because they are rich in essential fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants that effectively moisturize, soothe and regenerate skin cells. We use milks in our soaps because they contains nutrients and vitamins that help to hydrate, nourish and gently exfoliate skin. Together, plant-based oils, butters and milks help to promote soft, clean, nourished and youthful skin. We use a combination of natural colorants (e.g. turmeric) and micas to color our soaps as well as essential oils and phthalate-free fragrance oils to scent our soaps.

Our candles are made using a coconut paraffin wax blend. Coconut paraffin wax lends to exceptionally fragrant and slow-burning candles. Our candles are wicked by hand with lead-free and zinc-free cotton wicks. They are also hand-poured in small batches and scented using phthalate-free fragrance oils.
